Air Force Player Quotes, December 28 at Omni Fort Worth Hotel

Quarterback Karson Roberts

What have you seen from Cal defensively?

"They are really good defensively. They are very athletic and are big up front. They are big in the secondary and linebacker level as well. We are going to have to go execute our stuff out there, make the right reads and put them on the ground in terms of cut blocks.

Fort Worth: Cowboys, Culture ... and Food!, Take I - Sundance Square

By Tom Burke,

'Tis the holiday season and the week before the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl and all throughout Fort Worth there is great clatter and anticipation of the arrival of the California Golden Bears and Air Force Falcons. And I imagine there is much excitement among California and Air Force fans of soon experiencing all that the great city of Fort Worth has to offer.

Goff leads Golden Bears with skill and finesse

By Dominic Clark,

Not since Aaron Rodgers has a Cal quarterback produced such conference recognition like Jared Goff.

Goff was justifiably a first-team All-Pac 12 selection this season as a junior.  The last Cal quarterback to receive the honor was in 2004 by Rodgers, the future hall of famer now playing for the Green Bay Packers.  Goff will surely add to his California legacy on December 29 when the Golden Bears meet Air Force in the 13th Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl.
